‘I wish to announce that the strike is over,’ Kilroy said simply. I waited on in Kilroy’s cell to write an announcement of the end of the strike for our Press outside, and I was still there when a nurse came in with the first egg-flips and brandy. You have missed one of life’s great moments if you haven’t tasted a brandy egg-flip after a forty one day’s fast.
